here's my attempt at an IW Daemon Prince. I can't see any reason why an IW army wouldn't use any big weapon thay had at their disposal. Also, you woudl think it woudl be up to the DP as to wether he stayed with the Company after he ascended or not.

if you're intested, here is a list of what i used:

Spoiler:

Metal DP
AoBR Ork Power Klaw
FW Dreradnought Assautl Drill arm (Right)
"Horned" Defiler mask (with horn cut off)
Bass guitar string for cables
Eldar Wraithlord base
Valkerie engien (chopped down to about 50% of original size)
Horns from the Possessed kit.

I'm loving the LED defiler, easier than trying to paint light effects

Tri-pod dread is very cool too very unique. I hope you saved those trax and use them for something else.

Yeah, I actually got two sets of them from Ramshackle Games.

I am kinda concentrating on my orks now, but plan to get back to this thread after I finish my warbikers.

I did mess with my Daemon Prince the other day, though. I decided that he should probably have a gun after all, so I went with a punisher cannon meant for a valkyrie.

Having been a Devotee before seeing the glory of the Waaaagh!!!! after the release of 5th ed Chaos Marines....
Here's a bit of my wisdom.


1 & 4. Iron Warriors do not utilize "Summoned Daemons". Daemon Princes and Possessed Marines are both corporeal entities, NOT "summoned daemons". And "Storm of Iron" by Graham McNeal is about the ascension of an Iron Warriors Daemon Prince, and if it's good enough for Graham, then it's more than okay with me.

2. I tried to make my Daemon prince look like his armor had become incorporated into his flesh, so i striped his flesh. No one complained.

3. Back then, you couldn't field Berserkers in an Iron Warrior force, soooo.... no comment.

I do like what you have done so far. 'Course, it does feel a bit Orky, which is never bad in my opinion!

" It says in the rules that if there are no models from one side left on the table, then that side has lost. What it DOESN'T say is that I can't pick my opponent's models up and throw them on the floor, so if I'm losing the game, all I have to do is pick my opponents models up and throw them on the floor, and then I WIN! YAY! Woohoo. Loophole: FOUND! "

I have a squad of berzerkers in my IW army and use in pretty much every game. As been pointed out before, there is an assault squad in Storm of iron that is borderline berzerkers.

i went with silver amrour and just used red on the Khorne shoulder pads and helmets. Looks alright actually.

Of course, your painting puts mine to shame so your 'zerkers woudl no doubt look as epic as the rest of your army!

Suddenly, a Wild Update Appears!!!

Yes, it's true. As I promised in June-ish, I'd post some updates after I finished my bikers. What I did not forsee was my hated co-worker would suddenly quit for a promising career as an assistant manager at Gamestop. While I'm gleeful he's gone, it left me holding the bag for a while. A bag that was full of overtime. So, I finally had some free time, and I decided to finish out my Defiler.

Some notes: I didn't realize until I saw these pics how dusty it was; I hadn't covered the bottom half and it's quite noticeable. I hadn't yet applied Dullcote, so I hit it with a can of compressed air and then did the dullcote. These pics are before that though. It looks less... furry now, but it's still wet and I'm too lazy to take these pictures again. I will when I decide to really redo these and make a proper army profile for these guys, which will probably be when the 6th Edition Legions book drops. Also, this is the last model until then, because these guys have always been my second string behind Necrons, and I'm going to be super busy with them for a while.

Enough lip flapping, here are some pics.



I wish I had done a better job of hiding the mold lines on the front, there.



Weapons are magnetized. I suspect my normal build will be TL Lascannons and a havoc launcher.



But here are my choices.



Now, some dusky shots:



With some of his little friends:



Personally, I'm not too sure how safe it is to walk so close in front of this thing.

I'm very pleased with the model. I've always liked it, since Dawn of War. I feel I did a decent job on it.

Awesome model and amazing paint job. i wish i coudl get my chevrons as tidy as yours (even using maskign tape they are never as nice as i want them to be).

From a games point of view, how come you went for the Lascannon/Havoc build which is (i believe) the most expensive one. Since it cant shoot anything else after the Battlecannon i always thought the optimum build was 4 DCCWs.

Chilling....that defiler is really beautiful. I was kinda iffy about all the gold first, but it turned out really well. He'll be great inspiration for me when I paint up my defiler

I haven't yet played a single game of 40K with CSM and only gave a quick glance through the codex, so I kinda just built what was the coolest looking. Looking at the rules for Ordnance weapons now, I see that was actually kind of a dumb thing to have done and I may have wasted some perfectly good lascannon bitz. It can't fire both of them, and there is really no situation where the lascannon is more useful then the battlecannon, right?

So, long story short, because I'm stupid. But since the weapons are magnetized, I think I should be able to fix that by adding some CCW's to it.

EDIT: ordered 2 more CCW's.

I run my defiler with Lascannon and close combat arm. I find the Lascannon comes in handy for a few reasons one its a better anti tank weapon for Land Raiders as you get to re-roll to hit. The second if you get a weapon destroyed they always pick the battle cannon leaving you another anti tank weapon to shoot back with.

edit

Forgot to say how nice the paint job is love the hazard stripes really well done, because of your rhino you inspired me to play with LEDs for my rhinos which I'm working on at the moment.

So, I had shelved this army some time back.

My nephew has decided he wanted to play 40k, after playing a great deal of Dawn of War. He decided he liked Imperial Guard. After further discussion, we decided on Traitor Guard, specifically; so that he could use my CSM units with his to pad out his forces while he develops his army. I'll build some renegades of my own to add to his. So I guess these guys are back in development. There will be a lot of house ruling since the Renegades lists I've seen are a little restrictive and I'd prefer to use the Valkyrie I bought on a whim when it was first released; as well as my Defiler.

Speaking of the Defiler, here it is with its final corrected build of 4 arms. The arms are on pegs so I can swap them out with other stuff, although smarter posters than I already explained why I don't want to in this thread, previously. It's unchanged from the previous images; the only things I've added are the 2 additional DCCW's, as well as about 6 months of dust since it's been sitting out finished since my last post. I kind of wished I had brushed it off before taking this picture now that I've seen it, I'll have to remember to do so when I consider this to be finished and do an actual army profile for these guys.



I also added some Khorne Berzerkers.



I think I did a good solid tabletop quality job. Unfortunately, I couldn't do too much better than that because I screwed up the priming. I primed them with Army Painter Dragon Red, and these were the first models I ever used that paint with. I went a little too heavy in some parts, and wound up making lemonade with what I had rather than strip them and start again from the beginning. It wasn't horrible per se and only some models were oversprayed but some finer details, like the heatsink area on the plasma pistols were a little obscured by excess paint. Speaking of, I used my airbrush to do a little spot of green glow. I also used an old toothbrush to do a splattered blood effect on the bases.

I also decided to max out plasma pistols with this squad. Although I don't usually use plasma pistols much, my feeling is that Khorne Berzerkers don't generally spend a lot of time worrying about how safe their equipment is.

I have a few more things that are either finished or just about finished that I'll upload pictures of here in the news few days. I'm just waiting for my traitor guard brass etch to show up, which will hopefully be soon, to add some finishing touches to them. I have a pair of Chimeras, a Leman Russ Executioner, an Armored Sentinel, and a Manticore. It turns out that when you don't spend all day dicking around with LED's and making hinged doors or carefully painted interiors you can bang these vehicles out in like a week from box to dullcote, who knew?
